Bobby Whigham brings the party.
M: Do you always play with your food?
B: Bon appetit
M: When did you get your first camera
B: Let me take you back to my 2nd grade birthday party. It was at the amazing roller skating rink “Spinning Wheels” – the must have place to have your party. I was anticipating getting a bow n arrow set because I wanted to be the black ninja turtle which I made up in my head. Not only did I get the my toy bow n arrow set, but my mom surprised me and got me a neon green teenage mutant ninja turtle 35mm camera the color of ooze.
What made this camera special was every picture taken had an image of one of the turtles printed on the actual photo once you got them developed.
M: What’s your favorite subject to photograph?
B: Models, and normal people. Youthful girls and boys with attitude and personality.
M: You were recently in NY for a while, do you think this has affected your photography?
B: I honestly don’t. I was so busy working on two TV shows I hardly had anytime to shoot. If it offered one thing it was a few new location ideas.
M: Britney – Love or hate?
B: It’s Britney bitch. Gimme gimme more!
M: Can you do the NKOTB Hangin’ Tough dance?
B: I’m more of the tootsie roll era
M: Who do you think your work speaks to?
B: I hope a broad audience
M: What’s next?
B: A very small short fashion film, the S/S 13 look book for Rxmance. A few shoots including one inspired by Sailor Moon, TLC fanmail, 2000 baby one more time tour and Coco from SWV’s nails.
M: Tell me about Capricorns for Lindsay?
B: It was a beer pong team name myself and one of my best friends Ally Mullen had. Ally and I share the same birthday, and love for Lindsay (she needs to get her act together we’re both on verge of falling out of love). Our team was so good and we were tweeting at Lindsay the whole time. If we won she was going to come out of rehab a star…. We ended up losing.
M: Three words that describe you.
B: Janet Jackson everyday
